The art section gives students a unique and exciting opportunity to enable their artwork to be seen.

Students are able to make connections with a variety of local businesses and have a huge sense of pride knowing that they were able to create something so meaningful.

Through this fun artistic process, the second graders are able to express themselves through their work and find joy in knowing that it is viewed and appreciated by both businesses and others throughout the community.

YOUTH ART MONTH

History of Youth Art Month According to the Council for Art Education, the Art & Creative Materials Institute (ACMI) created Children’s Art Month in 1961 as an event to emphasize the value to children from participating in visual art education. In 1969, the celebration expanded to include secondary school students, and the Children’s Art Month event officially became known as Youth Art Month. In 1984, ACMI created the nonprofit organization The Council

for Art Education (CFAE) to advocate for visual art education. CFAE coordinates the Youth Art Month program at the national level. While Youth Art Month typically occurs in March, local and state events celebrating visual art education take place on almost a year round basis, according to CFAE. Events and fundraisers take place in schools, libraries, art centers, museums, and even state capitol buildings. Youth Art Month exists to: • Recognize art education as a

viable factor in the total education curriculum that develops citizens of a global society. • Recognize art is a necessity for the full development of better quality of life for all. • Direct attention to the value of art education for divergent and critical thinking. • Expand art programs in schools and stimulate new art programs. • Encourage commitment to the arts by students, community organizations, and individuals everywhere. • Provide additional opportunities

for individuals of all ages to participate in creative art learning. • Increase community, business and governmental support for art education. • Increase community understanding and interest in art and art education through involvement in art exhibits, workshops, and other creative ventures. • Reflect and demonstrate the goals of the National Art Education Association that work toward the improvement of art education at all levels.
